The Keltoi association is a civil society aiming at developing social activities and education for children and youngsters. For this purpose, they have constructed a Celtic settlement (5th – 1st century BC) near Prášily (Šumava) where they organise short and long stays and focus partly on the technique of the Iron Age, partly on social aspects of their (and our) life.

They have as well organised a travelling exhibition combined with education packages. In Summer time, tourist visitors are welcome in the village to for example try how Iron Age people prepared meat, what they ate, how they slept or produced various products.

The entrance gate resembles finds at the Nevezice oppidum in Southern Bohemia and measures 5 x 5 metres in plan. Connected to it is a 40 metres long part of fortification using stone walls, filled up with earth. The rampart is is 2,5m high and 3m wide. There is the palisade 3m high on the rampart's upper edge. Inside, there is a log cabin and a log house, a potter’s shelter and a weaving / coinage workshop. Several types of roofing and walling are tried out.
